There are some cool releases this week! I’ve done another divided list below. 21 and Over and Workaholics are first in each list.
This week’s biggest releases are Side Effects, Beautiful Creatures, Struck by Lightning, and Teen Wolf: Season Two.
I smell an Oscar nomination and probably win for Meryl Streep! This film is directed by John Wells with writing by Tracy Letts and stars Julia Roberts, Meryl Streep, Benedict Cumberbatch, Margo Martindale, Chris Cooper, Sam Shepard, Misty Upham, Abigail Breslin, and Dermot Mulroney.
Acting since the age of five, Sarah Hyland is no stranger to the world of small and silver screen comedy. Best known as Haley Dunphy on ABC’s ‘Modern Family,’ Hyland has also worked with the likes of Howard Stern and Jennifer Aniston, and starred in a Disney Channel Original Movie, ‘Geek Charming.’ In her latest film role, Hyland tackles a different kind of comedy—that of the dark teen variety—in Brian Dannelly’s (‘Saved!’) ‘Struck By Lightning.’
Chris Colfer is not a man who wastes time resting on his laurels. In the past four years, we’ve seen him sing and dance on ‘Glee,’ win a Golden Globe® and two Teen Choice Awards, and become a #1 New York Times Bestselling Author thanks to his young adult novel, ‘The Land of Stories.’
Taking on the well-worn subjects of high school angst and drama, it would be easy for STRUCK BY LIGHTNING to feel trite and clichéd. But STRUCK BY LIGHTNING is not your average high school coming-of-age movie. It dares to be different from start to finish, and succeeds in being a funny and enjoyable dark teen comedy that pulls no punches about, well, anything.

Dear Readers, We talk a lot about “guilty pleasures”—you know, those things we do or like that we know we shouldn’t. But, I wonder: How much “guilt” do we really feel about them? Maybe it’s me, but I just can’t muster any real “guilt” about loving some of the chick
